Daniel Kahneman is the 2002 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, notable for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision-making, as well as behavioral economics. His research is the basis for the Decisions Meeting Engagement Score™, which assess and predicts the likely success of a meeting from indicators of attendee preparedness and agenda creation. 

Kahneman challenges assumptions of human rationality prevailing in modern economic therapy. Organization psychologist and Decisions advisor Knut Ivar Karevold shares: “Kahneman’s work is the foundation for those of us who study after him.
